Efficient Test Solutions for Core-based Designs
IEEE Transaction on Computer-Aided Design of Integrated Circuits and Systems, Vol.23, No.5, May 2004, pp. 758-775
A test solution for a complex system requires the design of a test access mechanism (TAM), which is used for the test data transportation, and a test schedule of the test data transportation on the designed TAM. An extensive TAM will lead to lower test-application time at the expense of higher routing costs, compared to a simple TAM with low routing cost but long testing time. It is also possible to reduce the testing time of a testable unit by loading the experiments on benchmarks as well as industrial designs in order to demonstrate that our approach produces high-quality solution at low computational cost.
